THURSDAY, JULY 7: Two American tourists were robbed after two men rode up to them on a cycle and snatched a handbag.

The thieves pulled up along side the married couple and grabbed the bag off the woman’s shoulder.

The victims tried to chase the thieves on their rental cycle but they escaped along Paynters Road in St George’s.

The bag snatch took place at 6pm on Wednesday while the tourists were riding along Stables Lane.

The visitors were not injured and described the suspects as being two black men in their early 20s, riding a dark-coloured motorcycle.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to this incident or anyone with any information, in particular any taxi drivers who were in the Paynters Road area between 5 and 6pm that may have seen the suspects, to contact DC Jason Trott at 295-0011.
